In this episode, Adam and Budi speak with their mentor and great friend Stephen Wangh.

Stephen Wangh has been a playwright, director, and teacher of acting.

He is the author of 15 plays and was one of the writers of The People’s Temple (Glickman award: Best play in the Bay Area, 2005). He was Associate Writer for The Laramie Project (Emmy nomination 2002), and dramaturg of Moisés Kaufman’s Gross Indecency, the three trials of Oscar Wilde (1997).

Stephen now teaches the Acrobatics of the Heart immersive summer training for performers. And he leads seminars and workshops on the Inner Dynamics of Teaching for teachers of the performing arts.
